Instrument rating refers to the qualifications that a pilot must have in order to fly under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) in North Carolina. It requires additional training and instruction beyond what is required for a Private Pilot Certificate or Commercial Pilot Certificate, including rules and procedures specific to instrument flying, additional instruction in meteorology, and more intensive training in flight solely by reference to instruments. Testing consists of a written exam and a practical test which is known more commonly as the "check ride." The check ride is divided into an oral component to verify that the applicant understands the theory of instrument flying and an actual flight to ensure the pilot possesses the practical skills required for safe IFR flight.

Instrument training in Charlotte isn't difficult but it requires a commitment of time, energy and focus. While your early instrument training may seem repetitive, it's critical that you learn early on how to control your airplane, instinctively, for each flight regime required. Your approaches will be safer, your flying investment will seem more worthwhile and your confidence level will soar when you complete the training.
